“I had been looking for a training provider in Mediation for some time when I came across the Align website. I was originally considering the residential course but as I run a business this was not a suitable option for me and so I opted for the distance learning course. I found the course content to be of very high quality and the video sessions which are filmed from previous residential courses gave a feeling of greater involvement in the course. I found the Training Manager Harry to be extremely professional and helpful throughout the assessment sessions and very supportive as I approached the final assessment. I would thoroughly recommend Align Mediation as a training provider in Civil and Commercial Mediation.”
“I embarked on the distance learning course and was so impressed with the efficiency of communication and the quality of the course material, both module notes and the videos provided. The personal tutor for the course supported me all the way through, and the face to face elements worked so well. The feedback given was constructive, honest and well informed. I feel genuinely enthused and trained to embark on mediations, and feel sure there will be on-going support from the Align Mediation team.”
“When I first enrolled onto the distance learning course, I was a bit apprehensive about what the experience would be like. I can honestly say my reservations were unfounded. The course content was clear, concise and easily digestible at your own pace. The assessment process was geared to self-learning and the support from all at Align Mediation was first class. I have no hesitation in recommending the course to anybody.”
“I got a lot out of this course. It is built around a process that provided me with a secure framework for dealing with a challenging task. The tutoring was first rate. I did the online version, and was pushed hard by my tutor to notice what I was doing and how I could be more effective. By the time I did the final assessment I was feeling confident. More importantly, I believe I now have the basic tools to start working as a mediator.”
“I found Align Mediation very helpful in training me as a mediator. The fact that they provided the option of distance learning with skype tutorials and assessments was of particular value to me to allow me to fit the training around my other work as a consultant to the legal industry."

"The Align Mediation distance learning course was professionally presented, comprehensive and thorough with good interaction and support from the Align team, especially Harry, via Skype and email. The content, format and processes presented in the course were logical and developed my understanding and appreciation of the value of mediation whilst providing me with skills necessary for successful mediations. Successful completion of the course has motivated me to include mediation as part of my career in the business and charity sectors. I would definitely recommend the Align Mediation course."
"I thought the Align Mediation course was fantastic. I was able to do it remotely alongside my job, which was a real benefit. My trainer was very motivating and provided me with constructive feedback each session. This approach fitted excellently alongside the informative training manuals provided. I look forward to continue developing my skills as a mediator, as I strongly believe that out-of-court dispute resolution can be hugely beneficial to clients in many circumstances."
"A few months ago, I decided to study the mediation process and become a certified mediator. After searching the internet, I chose Align Mediation as my provider. I am glad I made the right choice. Harry Thomas was my personal tutor and working with him was a pleasant experience – he was very helpful and completely on top of the teaching process. With regards to the training materials, I found them substantive and comprehensive. I am now a Certified Mediator. I strongly recommend this company to those interested in becoming one also."

“Having researched several training providers, I chose Align to train as an accredited mediator as I was drawn by the flexibility of the course. The feedback at the end of each module was constructive and I found the course materials clear, accessible and relevant to the final assessment.”
"I have to say that your input throughout this process on the distance learning course has been brilliant. Great service, great feedback and always on hand to fit in the sessions at convenient times. I really do appreciate all of your assistance."
"As someone who had carried out mediations previously I had always wanted to become an accredited Mediator. Doing the Distance Learning course with Align Mediation during the COVID-19 lockdown completely at my own pace was perfect for me as I also had the challenges of home schooling at the time! I now have more confidence professionally and having completed all my assignments over Zoom, it has given me the confidence to start offering my mediation services remotely. I would highly recommend the Distance Learning course to anyone who is completely new to mediation or to someone like myself who has carried out mediations previously and wishes to become accredited."
"Are you thinking about becoming a Mediator? Align Mediation will offer you unparalleled, quality in depth training, support when you need it and a bright future for your career."
"There’s more to mediation than meets the eye and Align Mediation will open your eyes. Align Mediation will teach you essential skills and techniques and help you to avoid pitfalls along the way. The course was presented in a friendly, informative and supportive manner by an excellent tutor. If you’re thinking of attending – go for it!"
"I completed my Mediation Training with Align Mediation through distance learning. This worked very well for me. I was sent all the teaching materials I needed and Harry was allocated as my online tutor.
The materials were easy to read and the DVD’s of the taught lessons from the residential course were really helpful. I was able to contact my tutor easily and tutorials and Module assessments were easy to arranged and carried out over Skype as was my final practical assessment.
I chose to complete the course over a week as I would have done if I had taken the residential option. I don’t feel I missed out in any way by gaining my accreditation in this way. I would thoroughly recommend Align Mediation to those interested in qualifying as a mediator."
Consultant Social Worker
“Whilst completing the Align Mediation distance learning course I was provided with a tutor (Harry) who was a good source of support and information. I found the course itself straight forward, informative and manageable. The videos that are provided as part of the course material bring the experience to life and reflected the course material well. I would highly recommend undertaking this distance learning course, and Align Mediation.”
“I participated in the Distance Learning Civil / Commercial Mediation Training Programme. The distance learning option fitted in well with my other businesses and allowed me to progress through the work at a speed commensurate with my existing levels of experience. The Skype sessions were fun and fully interactive and I benefited from the individual feedback I received. The notes provided by Align Mediation included some ‘Top Tips’ to support those who are new to business generation and the course equates to 40 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD).”
Retired Veterinary Practitioner
“For health reasons, I had to retire a few months ago having spent the previous fifty years in full time veterinary practice. Coming to terms with that situation forced me to look for a new intellectual challenge and whilst researching possibilities on the internet, I came across Align Mediation. Knowing that a distance-learning option of the 5 day course was available, I signed up. The course proved to be all I had wished with the added benefit of learning a new skill at an advanced age. Being able to fit the training into my available time at home suited me well and my personal tutor, Harry, was a great support throughout and always available for help and advice. The on-line video lectures were well-structured and easy to follow. I can thoroughly recommend this distance-learning course for anyone wanting to study mediation.”
